[Blog] How Easy Is It To Say ‘Yes’ To Your Outreach?
The Moz Blog recently had a great post on Effective Outreach by Beverly_Distilled. This discussion of techniques to reach journalists and interest them in your promotions is good, with practical advice. It also is applicable to more than journalists. Make a Good Impression First. One of the first points in the post is to ‘stop it with the flattery’ because most journalists don’t have time for that. But really, nobody wants meaningless flattery. It’s meaningless flattery when you send out a form letter with positive adjectives cc’d to a big group of people.

[Blog] Buzzing Communities - How To Build Bigger, Better, And More Active Communities
To put it simply; if you like this blog, you will love the book. The way we approach communities right now is broken. It's largely a collection of intuition, haphazard guesswork, and top-down processes. As a result, too many communities have failed, more are struggling, and nearly all could be much better. For the past year, I've been working on a book to change this. Today I'm ecstatic (and slightly nervous) to announce that my book, Buzzing Communities, is now available to buy. We urgently need a new approach to developing communities.

If you had $10 million to invest in one company and one company only based on their use of “social,” which company would it be and why? My heart says Twitter, because I love it so and because I think its leaders will figure out the business model eventually; my head says Google, because that's just the smart way to bet.

[Blog] The Latest News Over At Pinterest – Personalized Pages, New Pin, & More
Everytime you read a blog post, and you see the standard social media buttons at the end, it is usual now to see the Pin button as well for Pinterest. According to Pinterest’s official blog , when you now mouse over an image on a webpage, you will now see a small “Pin It” button appear in the corner. It’s been a while since we last looked at Pinterest. While Facebook and Twitter are the two social networks to watch and be on, Pinterest has been quietly soldiering away in the background. They have a loyal following and an amazing site. It’s a very stark contrast.

If you have never created a blog post in WordPress, or used Web-based software in any way, you’ll still be able to get the hang of it, but you’ll have to think about it a bit. Now that I’ve done it once, I’m sure I could do it in 30 minutes or less, and using the Formstack WordPress plug-in I’m looking forward to doing more with it here on the blog.

Let’s take a few scenarios again: Say you have a blog and newsletter with a lot of followers but none of those people are interacting with each other or feeling a sense of belonging. The word community is thrown around a lot. If you ask 100 people what community is you’ll likely get 100 different answers. Where the lines get blurry is when you have a group of people who are interacting on an ongoing basis, but aren’t really forming any relationships, a sense of belonging or a sense of identity. myself have looked at it as black and white many times.

AARP has published its recent survey on Boomers (conducted by GFK). According to this survey only 40% of adults age 50 and over consider themselves extremely (17%) or very (23%) comfortable using the Internet. That implies that about 60% of them feel uncomfortable for some degree and that they are still trying to figure out the web. Is that really so?
